Remembering ten folds

Peace and blessings everybody,

On November 11th, Canadians remember the brave men and women who have lost their lives in armed combat. I may not agree with the wars they are fighting, but that’s something I take up with the government at the polls on election day, not with the soldiers who risk their lives for us. Personally, I will be joining the commemoration ceremony in Ottawa and I wanted to create a head scarf style that would be understated and bring into light my deep respect for the deceased.  If you are not able to join a commemoration ceremony, please keep a moment of silence for those who have lost their lives in battle.

Of course you can recreate this style with different scarves and, of course, a different flower. However, I chose to use a red lace under-scarf, a viscose (pashmina) shawl and a Rememberance Day poppy.


STEP 1 – Place the shawl about 1/4 of the way behind your neck, tucking in the under-scarf
STEP 2 – Wrap the longer end in front of your chest
STEP 3 – Continue wrapping the long end behindyour head and under your bun
STEP 4 – Pull that same end over your head, pin the layers together at the meeting point
STEP 5 – Create two folds and pin to the other side
STEP 6 – Create more folds and secure with a second pin
STEP 7 – Check all the folds pending from the shawl and secure with a pin
STEP 8 – Add the poppy
